I got to spend a few days on the St. Joe and Coer D'alene river this week.I found that besides the "you wont catch anything this time of year"mantra from the locals,It is a fly fishing mecca! Non stop cutty action on dries and nymphs,white fish, and a few nice Bows.Amazing wildlife (deer,moose,elk,ducks)everywhere!I had three days of more than fourty miles of river,without another soul in sight. If you are planning a trip to do some fishing,I highly recommend this part of Idaho:D

So that's why they call Idaho the Gem state! Great pictures makes me want to start packing right now. I'll put that on my places to fish!

Try the Kootney, and Moyie rivers. Unbelievable trout fishing! There are even a few Gerrard trout to be caught.

Wow get pics! I bet that was fun. I fished the N.F. Clearwater a bunch but never made it up that far north.. sounds like something that will need to be done sometime.
